New Sprites, sketches, and plushy prototype photos!


Good evening, Drifters. We've been working hard behind the scenes all this week getting the team together, versioning, prototyping, blocking in schedules and all the the things that need to get done to get us set up proper. I do have a few special visual bits to help tide you over.

A new sprite for your enjoyment below:

Update on the Plushy - Rita Hunt is working hard on prototyping something fantastic! She'll continue work on this until we have a version that looks and feels right, so stay tuned.

 I've also got a sketch set to show in anticipation of the final print designs to vote on - keep in mind these will be in full color and in the same style as the other final concept art previously presented; these are just the beginnings:


As a last note for the day, we are working on further PayPal options for new supporters and for those who missed out (or had card problems with KS/Amazon), so we will keep everyone updated as soon as we have these up. Also keep an eye on the Devlog; we are updating it with more regularity.

Michael Walton, Alex Baev, and 144 more people like this update.

      #5 looks the best to me :)

    2. Creator David M Lopez on November 2, 2013

      Has there been any news on the Vita ver?

    3. Creator Dak on October 31, 2013

      #1 really took me...balancing on a crowd of chumps while lining up a shot. Love it! All concept art here is great though, and I can't wait to see the next batch.

    4. Creator ninjaman999 on October 31, 2013

      1, 3 and 5 are amazing ^_^

    5. Creator Kofi B. Agyeman on October 29, 2013

      can't decide.

      did anyone get a link for the survey yet?

    6. Creator Julien Rodriguez on October 28, 2013

      i really like 3 & 5

    7. Creator snkweb on October 28, 2013

      Like the # 1 too !

    8. Creator Tyler on October 26, 2013

      I really like #1, it shows him in a more natural pose, and stepping on the heads of baddies shows a little character. It's not so flashy as the others, which are kind of standard badass poses. But whatevs.

    9. Creator slaynAW on October 25, 2013

      The #3 !

    10. Creator Victoria on October 25, 2013

      I say 3 or 4

    11. Creator AlieN InK on October 25, 2013

      @ new gameplay video in a week:
      W000000000000T!!!! :-) Yes!! I've watched the current trailer ten thousand times, and showed it to a thousand friends :-) Totally epic, and now I can't wait to see new stuff!!

    12. Creator Heart Machine on October 24, 2013

      Gameplay video is in the works; we have about a week left before we debut it.

    13. Creator Franck Mahon on October 24, 2013

      Definitively #3

    14. Creator Dawn D on October 24, 2013

      The plushie is looking great!
      And geez it's gonna be hard to pick when voting for the final print comes

    15. Creator TheGunheart on October 24, 2013

      5's my favorite. It's just suck a cool pose; dynamic, fluid, great sense of movement.

    16. Creator Kofi B. Agyeman on October 24, 2013

      brendon fitzgerald put a smile on my face

    17. Creator Austin Lightning on October 24, 2013

      03 or 04, but I'd go with 04...

    18. Creator Baron von Darrin on October 24, 2013

      how do we get a plushy when those are finalized?

    19. Creator Brendon FitzGerald on October 24, 2013

      Where is the gameplay video? I almost canceled my pledge near the end of the project because it seemed a little suspect that you kept bringing up a gameplay video but never showed it. I decided to give you the benefit of the doubt because of your passion and fantastic updates. However, I am still very curious about this video and would love to finally see it.

    20. Creator Asavarserkul on October 24, 2013

      definitly 3 its too AWESOME and PLUUUSSSHHHIIIEEEE XD

    21. Creator Serket on October 24, 2013

      Personally I prefer 5, I just think it looks the coolest, but then i started looking a bit more at 2 and 4... holy flying cow!! Am I seeing dual blades? Is that going to be an option in the game too? Like having to give up your shield for the second blade but being able to deflect projectiles and QC attacks with their swings? Because I'd love to have that option, and any news on the combat video?
      Anyway, great job with the prints, even in these early stages they look amazing, so as always have fun and best of luck to all the team, and looking forward to future updates.

    22. Creator Filip Lizanna on October 24, 2013

      I think 5 may be the coolest. 3 is a close second tho.

    23. Creator Dany Quest on October 24, 2013

      I think the game is 100% definded in 5

    24. Creator AnnaCannibal on October 24, 2013

      I like all of those do you expect me to choose one?!

    25. Creator John Harfouche on October 24, 2013

      Dude, it is ALL about number 3!

    26. Creator Kate Thomas on October 24, 2013

      though im not getting a print 8(
      1 and 3 are the best looking ones

    27. Creator Jordifio on October 24, 2013

      1 & 3 for sure

    28. Creator Keith Shaw on October 24, 2013

      5 & 3 !!!

    29. Creator TheChosenOne on October 24, 2013

    30. Creator Dadou Lovo on October 24, 2013

    32. Creator Mario S. Borbon on October 24, 2013

      5 and then 2

    33. Creator Sharkey on October 24, 2013

      I just gotta say #1 looks BADASS, such an awesome shot. ^_^

    34. Creator Mighty Holo Returns on October 24, 2013

      While I am bummed I missed out on the hardcover art book, those print designs make me feel a bit better. Plushie looks amazing so far.

    35. Creator Jerome Sly Robinson on October 24, 2013

      Gotta Go For 5

    36. Creator Minzoku on October 23, 2013

      I vote #1 and/or 5! ...and if we only get one choice, I can't pick T_T

    37. Creator Orson Cream on October 23, 2013

      =D LOVE the sprite, and the print art is looking awesome, but I feel like the plushie feet should point forwards? :0c

      I don't know about anyone else, but I prefer plushies with arms that hang down by the sides over ones that stick out.... Not that I was able to afford a plushie, I just wanted to give some feedback! @__@
